Module 2

I’ve seen parents be very active with a child learning at a young age. While i don’t know exactly what they did in terms of learning, their child grew up being one of the smartest in his grade. in my opinion, if parents are really into their child’s learning, it can lead to the student gaining lots of knowledge at a young age. The best part is that while the child continues to grow, so will their knowledge and content because learning new things is something they’re use too doing. It could also be that the child has more knowledge than the average kid and as they grow up kids become more curious which can lead that child to wanting to learn more things due to that curiosity. I can remember as a kid being the one to ask why to about everything. It was mainly because of curiosity, but i gain large amount of knowledge in different areas. The reason i became curious about things is due to the fact that my parents really were interested in my learning before i started school. once i started school, i made friends and what do friends do? they talk. That is probably the quickest young kids learn things is from their peers. I can’t even count how many times in a day that one my friends says something that i didn’t know and next i place it in my content for later and vice versa for my friends.

  1. Hi Austin,
    I enjoyed reading your post! I agree with you on your points about children learning and growing. I like how you added a fact about you when you were a child, it makes your post more interesting. I too remember always asking “why” when I was growing up, and I have to admit I still do this very often. This leads to your comment about kids learning new information due to curiosity. I think this point is very accurate and by spending time around children I can say that I have experienced it first hand. Sometimes kids can even be too curious.. Haha
    Good post!

  2. Hey Austin,
    I definitely agree with your post. It was very important to my mother and father that I got the most from my learning as well. They would ask me questions about what I learned at the dinner table, and most times I would begin by making something up, and finish with an actual story I remember in class. I think it was because I felt pressured to be learning, when I already had the curiosity factor, much like yourself. I definitely was one to search further in to any subject that was presented to me until I was satisfied with my understanding of it. Not only do I think it was our parents interest in our education, but the natural yearning for knowledge is a big factor as to why we became the people who we are today. I feel that it also plays a big part as to how we piece things together, and how we apply our knowledge to given situations. Nice post man.
